Anyways, to celebrate my birthday... I'm doing a GIVE-A-WAY! Yah! My first ever blog giveaway.... Here's how this works:
Send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line "Happy Birthday" and then tell me what you'd love to have photographed in your life.... your kids, yourself, your wedding... whatever! I will randomly draw one email & that person will receive a $150 photog credit (read: a FREE session or a discount on your wedding package!)
So get emailin'! I will accept emails until Sunday night (August 31st) at midnight...
(A photo of my dear hubby & myself headed out to my birthday dinner last night.....)

Friday we went to the Taste of Blue Ash with our friends Jeff & Olivia... We sampled lots of different treats from local restaurants... Unfortunately the weather (which has been oddly cool & beautiful for August) decided to crank up the heat on us this weekend & has been steadily in the 90's, so Noah was SO HOT. I told his daddy to go grab him a drink (thinking he'd buy a bottle of water or something).... he comes back with THIS.
Yes, that would be a snow-cone almost bigger than my sons head. All I could think of was all of the sugar packed in that thing. I don't want to think about what else daddy gives him when mommy isn't around.....
Saturday afternoon & evening was spent in Indiana with our friends Alan & Erin. It was a bittersweet time for us because they are preparing to move far far away and while we're totally psyched for them & what God has in store for their lives, we are bummed to not be able to spend as much time with them as we have in recent years... Here's a photo from this weekend doing what we do best together... playing cards :o)

Here are just a couple shots from our shoot while in was in Tulsa, Oklahoma last month
I realize I haven't done any personal blogs as of late & really want to begin doing so a little more... I often send my future clients to my blog to "get to know me & my style a little better" and while I feel like I represent my style here, I'm slacking on the "get to know ME" better part.... So soon I will start sharing more about me, what's going on in the Donaho household, and any other random fun things I can think of :o) So prepare yourselves!

Their ADORABLE son, Trace...
Note to all upcoming couples: One of my most favorite things about photographing Michelle & Savaday is how incredibly comfortable they are in front of my camera. I HIGHLY recommend engagement sessions to all my couples for this reason.... after spending time with me then & getting used to how we can work together, that makes it that much more comfortable on your wedding day & allows me to capture the two of you even better!
The beautiful Dresser Mansion...
Michelle & Savaday - Thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of your beautiful day. I am SO thrilled for your life together and all the excitement that is ahead of you both!

A few weeks ago I was in Tulsa shooting a wedding & several other sessions..... I had the pleasure of spending time with the Biddle family while I was there. We did their photo session at their home which I thought was so great & will really give them great memories of their children in their home during this phase of their life.... Here's a quick preview from that session...
Also while in Tulsa that week, I caught up with Heather to do a bridal session! Heather married her man, JP last week in Wisconnsin... stay tuned for photos from their beautiful big day soon! Here's my favorite shot from Heather's session.....
And one more for today.... A photo session from here in the 'Nati.... (Well, actually we shot in Northern Kentucky.... close enough).... Kelly & Bobby are old high school friends of mine who wanted to do some updated photos of themselves & also Kelly's brother who was in town visiting. We had lots of fun with this shoot & here is one of my favorites from their day..... I love the crazy lighting in this one....
Within the next few days I'll be posting photos from three maternity sessions & an awesome wedding in Tulsa..... Stay tuned!
